Back on October 15, actress Felicity Huffman started her 14-day prison sentence at the Federal Correctional Institution in Dublin, California. She was serving the sentence after pleading guilty to one count of fraud in the shocking college admissions scandal.
Huffman was originally scheduled to serve all 14 days of her sentence, but she was released a few days early on Friday morning instead of Sunday.
According to prison policy, inmates who have release dates that fall on weekends are sent home on Friday instead. We’re sure her sentence was scheduled this way on purpose.
In addition to the short stay in prison, Huffman also had to pay a $30,000 fine. She will also need to complete 250 hours of community service.
Huffman admitted to giving $15,000 to consultant Rick Singer to boost her daughter’s SAT score. She delivered a tearful apology in court, saying she was in a state of panic that her daughter would not be admitted to college to study acting.
Meanwhile, Full House actress Lori Loughlin continues to fight the allegations made about her. Reports claim she paid $500,000 to Singer to get her daughters into USC.
Loughlin and (her husband) Giannulli were indicted on Tuesday, and now each face three charges, including money laundering and federal programs bribery.
